**ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!** ViNtaGe BIRD TIN!*!*!

I'm getting Sooooo Excited about this Upcoming Weekend's Antique Show in St. Charles, Illinois!*!*!  Yesterday I made some "firm decisions" as to what items I will be bringing to the Show...
This darling little VINTAGE BIRDIE CONTAINER WAS Among Them...  That's right - WAS!!! ~ Soooooo Sorry!!!  (4) - On & Off price tags later...  I came to my senses - brought it back upstairs... AND "for now" ~ it's staying put among my vintage garden collectibles!*!*!  At least this is ONE item I wont' have to say:  "What Was I Thinking"!!!

 The Patina on the old bird decal is FaB!!!
(click to enlarge...)




 I have "a love for vintage bird items" and I can't believe I even considered parting with it!!!




 The backside of the painted tin container also has bird ~ less patina...



 The top embossed inscriptions reveal that perhaps it contained "CANDY" -OR- "SEEDS" at one time???




 Sweet...



 A PeRfeCt "go-with" among my other vintage garden collectibles...

    Oh you are funny...yet I totally understand about the on/off price tags! And yep, if it tugs at your heart that much keeping it is the right decision!

    Have fun at the show this weekend.
